12% of Hispanic students in Nashville public schools take AP classes

12% of Hispanic students in Metro Nashville Public Schools take Advanced Placement classes, according to The Tennessean, which is reporting numbers released from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.

The number is 5% in Rutherford County, according to the story.

Our local paper does not report whether those numbers are trending up or down. Two years ago, the Tennessee Department of Education reported that the number of Hispanic students in Tennessee who were taking at least one AP exam was up 35%.
